BF3 Famas Rifle Changes Planned

Battlefield 3 lead designer Alan Kertz tweets about plans to nerf the Famas rifle from the Back to Karkand DLC for Battlefield 3: "After playing with and without fore grip on my FAMAS, not sure I could nerf it enough lol. Hmm, this one is a biiiiiiiiiit OP." The DICE weapons expert explains on reddit why he wasn't available to catch this prior to release:  "I was on vacation, I think the Back 2 Karkand team did a great job without me, and the FAMAS just demonstrates that the foregrip is OP. It's the only accessory without any downside. Given that the FAMAS is very difficult to use without the foregrip, I can't really blame the team on B2K for having an item from the base game OP one of their additions. We'll get this sorted out and in the mean time, it's still only good at mid to close range." Thanks BF3blog.

I can only give you like.. 3 pointers.. its hit and miss.. a good pilot you will NEVER destroy with just 1 engineer doing stinger duty.

1) What you see, is not what the server sees. Just because it doesn't say locked, doesn't mean you can't shoot. There is a ever so slight delay between locked and shot (and between actual lock and client displays lock lock) So paint a heli and keep clicking fire, notice it fires BEFORE the lock appears.

2) Now that he popped flares aim somewhere at the heli where theres no flares in between heli and your targeting reticule. If you paint a heli with flares in the reticule it won't work. But you have some freedom where to actually point the targeting thing. As soon as you see the tracer tone again keep pressing fire until it fires and don't wait for the lock text. Its a guaranteed hit, haven't seen any pilot/gunner combo yet that suspected a quick refiring, most of the time when they hear the stinger and shot ping they dive behind the landscape, gives you time. Also makes it impossible to destroy them ;/

3) If all fails, find a server where people read the chat, ask for soflam at the heli and take javelin yourself. Best if its in your squad. Javelin is a 100% kill against flares.

One thing though, if you ever try to take down a jet with ECM perk with a javelin... forget it. These jets pilots can activate a sustained jammer against ALL (and multiple) missiles and often just fly straight up and jam once they hear a firing ping. Theres no way to down these with ground based weapons.
